Do we ever learn

Do we ever really learn
The difference 

between holding out a  hand

Or clutching someone to us

 in a vicelike band

The fluidity of trust

Is better than control

That we all need space

Love doesn’t mean shackles

tightly in place
Do we ever really learn
Unthinking actions will cause hurt

How ever much someone cares, 

some things are cursed

How ever hard we love

Some people are not in the same grove

We are not unloveable

it’s not the right move 

Not to get stuck in despair 

let misery hold sway

That tomorrow starts another day
Do we ever really learn

lessons from yesterday
Do we ever  really learn

To live life at its best?

    1. Its about our beliefs and how we see the world. So many unconscious beliefs and actions that often scupper our best intentions. We react in learnt patterns and to break that we have to look hard at ourselves and our reactions and that is difficult. So many of us never learn.
